without pomp or pageantry, it was a simple affair in the white house blue room, with his wife and daughters at his side. the president fulfilling the constitutional requirement of being sworn in on the 20th of january. meanwhile, thousands have descended on this city tonight to share in tomorrow's traditional public swearing in and inaugural parade and witness the start of the second half of barack obama's historic presidency. we have full coverage of the second inauguration and we start with nbc's peter alexander across the street from the white house at lafayette park. peter, good evening. >> reporter: lester, good evening to you. the first family will watch that inaugural parade right behind us. this is pennsylvania avenue and that is the reviewing stand where they will sit. but before the festivities can begin, the president today had to take care of some constitutional business. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear -- >> reporter: the ceremony was as intimate as it was brief. inside the white house, joined by his immediate family, president obama was sworn in by justice john roberts, who after famously flubbing the words four years ago, this time read from a printed script. >> that i will faithfully execute -- >> that i will faithfully execute. >> -- the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> reporter: the presidential oath, punctuated by a playful critique from the obama's youngest daughter. >> i did it. >> reporter: the first lady later tweeting, "i'm so proud of him." with the public event tomorrow, why another oath today? the constitution mandates the president's term ends at noon on the 20th day of january. and this year, for only the seventh time, that fell on a sunday. >> i, joseph r. biden, jr. -- >> reporter: vice president biden was sworn in separately this morning by justice sonia sotomayor, the first hispanic judge to administer the oath of office. >> the duties of the office of which i'm about to enter. >> so help me god. >> so help me god. >> reporter: at a preinaugural ball last night, the vice president mistakenly gave himself a promotion. >> i am proud to be president of the united states -- >> reporter: together, the president and vice president also laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier in arlington national cemetery -- [ "taps" ] -- before the obamas headed to church. even before hundreds of thousands gather for tomorrow's inaugural address, the obstacles the president faces in the second term in with a deeply divided government, were on full display from guns -- >> within minutes of that horrible tragedy in newtown, the president began trying to exploit that tragedy to push a gun control agenda that is designed to appeal to partisans. >> reporter: to the nation's still-recovering economy. >> he is addicted to spending. and those are policies that will hurt our country long term. >> reporter: and tonight, a top white house adviser tells nbc news that the president has finished writing his remarks for his inaugural address tomorrow that he will deliver shortly after completing the ceremonial oath of office. and then, tomorrow night, the obamas, lester, will celebrate with two inaugural balls, compared to ten four years ago. >> all right, peter, thank you. >>> and washington is getting ready for the spectacle that brings at least a sense of unity to this city once every four years. nbc's kelly o'donnell is outside the capitol with that story. kelly, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, lester. this is where it all happens for what is the grandest photo op in american politics. tomorrow, we will see the president walk through that red drape behind me and he will take the ceremonial oath and deliver his inaugural address at the front of that stage. just final touches to go. and counting down to that moment, there was actually plenty to see today. save all the pageantry for tomorrow. ♪ this day before the big show is a street fair. ♪ >> it's just awesome to experience just being here. it's just awesome. very historic. >> reporter: a noisy, crowded festival of anticipation. >> celebrating the next four years, celebrating america. >> reporter: washington in gridlock over parking, not politics. today, no tickets were required, so this is as close to the action as many visitors will get. >> it doesn't matter where we are. >> wherever we are, we will be happy. >> just as long as we are here in the area where everyone else is so that we can take part. >> reporter: and you'll find memories to go. >> three for 20. three for 20. >> reporter: the chance to say they were here often comes at the end of a long ride across several states. >> we got on a charter bus at 6 in the morning and left our little town in upstate south carolina. >> reporter: today, long lines waited to see the wreath-laying, honoring the holiday for martin luther king, jr. >> even though that it's crowded and there are lines everywhere, i mean, it's -- everyone's in such a good mood. >> reporter: and this test run day shows the capitol is just about ready. after tidying up the streets and making the national mall foot friendly. that is a temporary plastic floor to protect the new secretary of defense lawn. visitor's soaked up today's 60 degrees. >> it's beautiful out. we are enjoying it. >> reporter: well, that 60 degrees was fleeting, lester. it is more appropriately january-like right now. but when i talked to organizers today, they are worried about the same kinds of things anyone would be concerned about if you're throwing a big party, will everything be in the right place at the right time? will everyone enjoy themselves? lester? >> a lot of folks holding their breath tonight. kelly, thanks. >>> beyond the pomp and circumstance, another priority tomorrow is keeping all of those hundreds of thousands of people converging on this city safe. nbc's justice correspondent, pete williams, looks at a city on high alert. >> reporter: in the airspace above washington, helicopters and jets will enforce a virtual no-fly zone for 30 miles in all directions from the u.s. capitol. six miles of the potomac and anacostia rivers will be shut down, with 150 blocks of downtown washington closed to traffic, partly out of concern for car or truck bombs. >> we have to be prepared for everything, so that's the way we do. we prepare with all of our partners and try to come up with a plan for every eventuality. >> reporter: much of inaugural security will be visible for protection and crowd control, with countersnipers on top of buildings around the capitol and along the parade route. some not so visible, detectors monitoring the air for toxins and plain-clothed security teams at subway and train stations watching for suspicious behavior. at the ready near the capitol, thousands of doses of antidotes in case of a chemical or biological attack. no firm figures are available, but officials say all this security will cost about $120 million for hundreds of federal agents, thousands of local police and national guardsmen from 25 states. this second obama inaugural is expected to draw less than a third of the nearly 2 million who came four years ago. [ sirens ] six bridges and freeways that were closed then will be open this time. but a highway tunnel used as a pedestrian access point that became clogged with thousands last time will be closed this year. and officials say they will have more metal detectors in use and advisories on social media, hoping to avoid the long lines, some that never moved. >> there's over 500 pole-mounted signs that last time that didn't even exist. we have also increased a number of way finders, people giving people direction, telling people where to go. >> reporter: so far, officials say they know of no credible threats to the ceremonies, but they will be out in force, hoping to make sure nothing goes wrong. pete williams, nbc news, washington. >>> as we look ahead to tomorrow, i'm joined here by brian williams. brian, i went back and looked at the president's remarks four years ago, part pep talk and also a lot of talk about the hope, the end to conflict and discord. that part didn't work out so well. how does he frame the next four years? >> i heard a very smart guy say something very smart this weekend, that is that the highs aren't going to be as high and the lows aren't as low. meaning, we are not going to look out there tomorrow and see that incredible sight, that breathtaking sight of 2 million americans. the excitement level is different. then again, the u.s. economy is not in free fall. one of two wars, at least, has wound down. so, these -- no two of these speeches are different, no two presidential administrations are different. i think tomorrow reflects a more hardened time. >> is there something liberating about being a second-term president, that you are not facing re-election? >> i guess so. you and i were talking before we went on the air how will this speech differ from a state of the union? will there be present day references? mostly there for the test of time, but will there be a newtown reference? will we get through the speech without a reference to lincoln's second inaugural? we will have doris kerns goodwin on hands tomorrow, who wrote the book, just in case. i think is something probably liberating. second terms are for legacy. second terms can also be fraught and problematic. that's for the history books to determine. >> you have a big day ahead of you tomorrow. >> as do you. >> our inaugural coverage begins tomorrow morning on "today," and brian then leads our extended coverage throughout the day here on nbc. >>> there will be an inaugural poem read during the ceremony here tomorrow, and this year, the poet is richard blanco, born in spain to cuban exiles to emigrated to this country, the first latino and first openly gay inaugural poet. today, we spoke to him about his connection to president obama and here's part of what he had to say, in his own words. >> the connection to the inaugural's very theme of our people, our future, to me, symbolizes the salt of the earth that was my family. you know, that their hard work, that we are all in this together, that it takes -- it takes a village kind of feeling. and so, that theme i identified by a lot. part of the life story that always resonated with me. i can imagine him as a child sort of having to negotiate some very important cultural questions as well as i have had as a cuban-american and that whole question of where do i belong? you know, what's home? the sense of the support of the family and that idea that our parents always wanted us, my brother and i, to always do better than them. i will never forget that speech at the convention, we are one america, and that made me feel so much like i was one of those ones. and even though my work has been specifically about -- about my family, it's really about some very basic universal themes, about belonging, about love. and so, i think that sense of unity is what i want to bring across and i hope -- i want to feel as connected to america tomorrow, me personally, as i hope we all feel to each other and as i hope they feel to me. zblervelg zblervelg zblervelgts. >>> we have a lot more ahead on "nbc nightly news." >>> more than half a century after one of the defining civil rights era, a ban from little rock writes a new chapter in the history books. >>> there is news tonight of yet another multiple shooting. police have charged a 15-year-old boy with multiple counts of murder after discovering the bodies of five people, including three children, in a home in albuquerque, new mexico. the victims were shot with what is believed to be an ar-15 rifle. >>> moving overseas, there's more tonight on that hostage situation in algeria. after yesterday's final assault by algerian forces, another 25 bodies were found today by a bomb squad, clearing the gas plant of explosives. that raised the death toll to at least 81, including one american. algerian officials said it was unclear whether the additional bodies were those of hostages or militants who took over the plant. >>> rare snow and ice brought parts of britain to a standstill this weekend, shutting down travel and stranding hundreds of passengers at london's heathrow airport. at least 20% of flights in and out of europe's busiest airport were canceled today, with no word on when many of them will be rescheduled. >>> here in this country, a new concern tonight for many college students heading back to school this week after winter break, fighting the worst flu outbreak in years. while colleges have encouraged students to get vaccinated, there is still fear of fresh outbreaks. nbc's michelle franzen has more. >> okay. so here for a flu shot today, right? >> yep. >> reporter: back from break, wisconsin madison junior mark sebert is doing all he can to keep from getting the flu. >> my mom has been hounding me about it and i work with kids at the day care through the university so it doesn't hurt. >> reporter: he is one of hundreds of students on campus getting a shot due to the nationwide flu outbreak. >> heard all the statistics through the tv and just said, why not? >> reporter: according to the cdc, 48 states are now reporting widespread cases of the flu. 30 states report a high level of activity. and that has college health officials bracing for the worst. >> we are concerned about because students are returning from all over the world and all over the country, that they may be incubating those infections and bring them back to campus. >> reporter: at the madison campus, health workers say it is the first time they are arming students with shots this late in the season and have extra vaccines ready to go. >> just in the last week alone, we have seen almost 400 students coming in for shots, which is relatively unheard of for us to do in january. >> reporter: in massachusetts, health workers at umass amherst are also using fliers, social media and flu clinics to get the word out and help students who get sick. >> lots of students get frustrated with the illness. they miss classes and this takes a toll on them psychologically, as far as getting behind in their schoolwork. and we do our best to support them with that process. >> reporter: support and precautions that could help students keep the doctor and flu away. michelle franzen, nbc news, new york. >>> the baseball world lost another legend this weekend, hall of famer stan musial died last night. the st. louis cardinals' shortstop won three world series rings and seven batting titles in his 22 seasons with the team, retiring in 1963 with 55 major league records. two years ago, he was awarded the presidential medal of freedom, the highest honor given to an american citizen. san musial was 92 years old. >>> when we come back, a look at how the first lady's second term could look a little different. >>> the capitol all ready for tomorrow's inauguration festivities, we are back from washington with a question on the minds of many people, as president obama's second term begins. how will the first lady's role evolve? we asked white house correspondent kristen welker to take a look. >> reporter: america may be politically divided, but most americans agree, they really like first lady michelle obama. ♪ you hit me like the sky fell on me ♪ >> reporter: public popularity on display saturday night at the kids' inaugural ball honoring military families. helping those families has been one of mrs. obama's key initiatives. >> when i think about what makes america great, i think about all of you, our men and women in uniform, our military spouses and our amazing military kids. >> reporter: her other focus, fighting childhood obesity. but as she prepares to spend another four years at the white house, some critics suggest the harvard-educated lawyer should take on more policy-heavy goals. top advisers push back. >> well, there were policies behind the initiatives that she did. >> reporter: valerie jarrett says the first lady and you her staff are working on a new agenda. >> she really is very determined to make sure that they think it through thoroughly and that they don't just do one-off things. she wants to really make sure that it's thought out. >> reporter: ivillage chief correspondent kelly wallace covers michelle obama. >> she is obviously going to add other issues to her plate. i wouldn't be surprised if you hear her talking more about work/life balance. >> reporter: no matter what the first lady's new agenda holds, advisers say the role of mom-in-chief will always be her top priority. >> every day, i hope that i'm doing right by my girls. every day. >> reporter: malia is now 14 and sasha, 11. that means college applications and all the challenges that lie ahead. >> as i get a little bit older and as i have now so adjusted to washington, i think that frees her up a little bit more to spend more time on the initiative she is cares about, but she will never take her eyes off the two of them. >> reporter: kristen welker, nbc news, the white house. >>> we will be right back with some echoes of the past playing out here in washington tomorrow. >>> finally tonight, layer upon layer of history will unfold here tomorroas we inaugurate a president and observe the holiday, honoring the memory of dr. martin luther king, jr. but there will be other reminders of this nation's long journey on the road to inclusion. among them, a high school marching band from arkansas and a civil rights pioneer who bookend a vivid story of how far this nation has come. the name is the same, but the little rock central high school of 2013 marches to a different drum. the irony will be inescapable when this racially mixed group of students from little rock's most infamous school perform at the second inauguration of america's first black president. >> we are not just historic because of what happened in 1957. we are great in academics, music, which is why we are going to the inauguration. >> reporter: 1957. before these students and even the president himself were born. little rock central high was not a great place then, but rather the flashpoint in the battle over court-ordered school desegregation, forced by the federal government to accept black students. >> at 8:28 this morning, little rock time, the nine negro students who arrive here at this school daily arrive here again this morning. >> reporter: terrence robert was one of the little rock nine. were you prepared, though, for the anger and visciousness that greeted you as you approached the school that day? >> not at all. there's no way on earth the nine of us should have survived that experience. the people who were in opposition to us were so devoted to the notion that we shouldn't be there that they were willing to kill us. >> reporter: their brave journey was a seminal event in civil rights history. and in 2009, more than 50 years later, terrence roberts stood outside the capitol to witness another historic moment. >> i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear -- >> is it fair to say what you and the other eight students did ultimately led barack obama to be president? >> well, yeah, perhaps not in any direct way but in terms of all the essential steps that needed to be taken, little rock was one of those essential steps. >> reporter: when the central high marching band plays for this inauguration, they will represent a very different place than the school roberts attended in 1957. a now-fully integrated place that does not run from its past. >> the school now is so connected to the history and the kids. every child who goes here knows about the history of this school. >> reporter: and those who made that history. >> if those kids could walk down the hallways and be subject to the type of abuse that they did, it set my mindset that i can do anything. >> to walk through those halls and to touch the same railing that they did, to be a part of the history, and now making history again here at central high school, you really feel empowered by that. >> reporter: and with that history at their back, the band will proudly march down pennsylvania avenue on monday. and also in washington again will be terrence roberts, who offers them this message. >> we, individually, have to know our history so that we understand our present and can anticipate our future. >> and that is our present for this sunday. brian williams will be here tomorrow covering the inauguration. i'm lester holt. reporting from washington, d.c., for all of us at nbc news, good night. >>> it's really a thrill. we are hard workers. we all put the work in. we've come from so far. you know, we've come from the bottom. >> from the bottom to the top. the san francisco 49ers are now headed for the super bowl where they hope to claim their sixth trophy. >>> good evening. i'm diane dwyer. celebrations are in order tonight after the niners come from behind to win in atlanta. this video is from our nbc bay area chopper. shortly after the niners victory, fans took to the strelg streets to celebrate. but no one seemed to mind. mindy is in atlanta with reaction from the team and henry wofford has the highlights. monty francis is in san francisco where the party continues. hello, monty. >> reporter: good evening. along the embarcadero, the waterfront has mostly cleared of fans. we were in pete's tavern whe

such a momentous occasion. >> brown: we have more on the fallout after lance armstrong's admission that he used performance-enhancing drugs to build his chpionship career. >> suarez: plus, mark

support of these institutions and foundations. and friends of the newshour. and... >> this program was made possible by the corporation for public broadcasting. and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> brown: information trickled out today about the siege of a natural gas plant in algeria. there was word that one american hostage had been killed, but a definitive accounting of all the captives remained elusive. at the same time, the algerians allowed the world to see pictures of some who'd been rescued. amid continued confusion, these were the first images of natural gas workers freed by algerian special forces. >> ( translated ): we went out and waved up white banners so the national army would recognize us as workers and let us go. >> brown: others were less fortunate, shown bandaged and in hospital beds. state tv broadcast the footage a ay after the army launched its operation, and two days after islamist militants seized the ain amenas complex in the desert near the libyan border. an algerian worker said the kidnappers had separated algerians from foreign workers.r then came the army assault. >> ( translated ): we were in a room, all of us, 260 people, all of us gathered there when the army started firing from a plane. so we went out through a door, the back door, to escape, to get away. the army helped. if it wasn't for the army, we would never have got out and got to the foreigners who were held hostage. >> brown: some of the rescued foreigners joined in praising the algerian military. >> i think they did a fantastic job. i was very impressed with the algerian army. very exciting episode. i feel sorry for anybody that has been hurt. >> brown: algeria's state news agency reported 100 of 132 foreign hostages got out, and a dozen algerians and foreigners died. it said nothing about the others. the militants had claimed to hold 41 foreigners, including seven americans. today, u.s. state department spokesperson victoria nuland said some americans are still being held. >> i think we've been clear that we have american hostages. we've been clear about that. >> and that's still the case? >> yes. >> brown: later, the associated press reported that one american had died. nuland flatly rejected a reported demand by the militants to trade two americans for two convicted terrorists jailed in the u.s. one is egyptian sheik omar abdel rahman, convicted of plotting to blow up major sites in new york. there were also reports that the algerian gas plant had not yet been fully secured, and that military operations were continuing. secretary of state hillary clinton addressed the issue after meeting with the japanese foreign minister. she said she spoke today with the prime minister of algeria. >> i urged the utmost care be taken in the protection of the hostages, algerian and expatriate foreign hostages. >> brown: other countries raised questions as well and pressed for more information. >> thank you, mister speaker. >> brown: in london, british prime minister david cameron told parliament that he'd had no advance warning of the rescue. >> i was told by the algerian prime minister while it was taking place. he said that the terrorists had tried to flee, that they judged there to be an immediate threat to the lives of the hostages, and had felt obliged to respond. >> brown: in indonesia, japanese prime minister shinzo abe cut short his first overseas trip since taking office, with japanese workers among the missing in algeria. >> ( translated ): we must absolutely not forgive any act that takes a life of t innocent, and at the same time, the hostages lives have to be given absolute priority. since the incident, our government has kept in touch with other nations and coordinated closely to gather information. >> brown: meanwhile, the algerian militants threatened today to carry out more attacks at foreign-owned sites. >> suarez: in algeria's neighbor, mali, french forces battled again today with islamists. we have an on-the-ground report from lindsey hilsum of independent television news. >> reporter: crossing the river niger, heading to the towns and villages threatened by mali's jihadi rebels further north. every vehicle coming down the road is checked. now the french have bombed the jihadi's camps and convoys, the fear is that individual islamists will infiltrate themselves and start a campaign of terror further south. we speed up the road, evidence everywhere of how poor mali is, how deprived, how hard life was even before war disrupted the people's existence. as we arrived in niono, we found a truckload of exhausted people who'd fled diabaly, 50 miles away, last night. the jihadis have occupied the town for a week and yesterday's french air strikes were intense. she ran for 24 miles through the bush with her children before the truck picked them up. >> ( translated ): so many things happened. the rebels did everything. they destroyed our houses. they did everything. i'm so tired. we are very, very tired. >> reporter: several told me the jihadis are mainly light-skinned arabs whom they suspect are some are teenagers. >> ( translated ): i couldn't tell their age, i could just see their size. it was clear they were very young people. some were too small even to carry their own backpacks. >> reporter: the malian army is in niono to hold the line until the french arrive. the malian soldiersay that without the french, they'd have no chance of confronting the jihadis. the people i've been talking to are terrified. outside, with the algerian tragedy, people must be asking if the french were right to intervene in mali. here there are no such doubts. when the jihadis took over the north last year, malian troops ran away. they couldn't believe their eyes. >> ( translated ): they're really heavily armed. i don't know how they managed to get those weapons. they're the most sophisticated in the world. and those vehicles, how did they get the supply line? i saw hundreds of vehicles in the north of mali. there are no petrol stations there, but they keep driving. its incomprehensible. >> reporter: local people bring rice to feed not just the displaced people but the soldiers, too. they know they're not out of danger yet. >> ( translated ): what happened in algeria is a manifestation of what we fear in mali. after mali, surely it would happen somewhere else. >> reporter: the people of mali have lived with this threat for years. now, the rest of the world is beginning to understand. >> brown: we'll have more on the developing situations in mali and algeria later in the program. also ahead: preparing for monday's grand ceremony; the inaugural poet; the lance armstrong doping admission; and shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreenivasan: the u.s. house of representatives will vote next week on lifting the debt ceiling. majority leader eric cantor said today republicans want an interim measurto provide about hree more months oboowing authority. the bill would not mandate immediate spending cuts, as house speaker john boehner earlier promised. instead, it would force congress to pass a budget or go without being paid. the government could reach the current debt ceiling by mid-february. ray nagin, the mayor of new orleans during hurricane katrina, has been indicted on charges for corruption. a federal grand jury accused him today of bribery, wire fraud, and money laundering while in office. nagin was the city's mayor from 2002 until 2010. two former new orleans officials and two busessmen have already pleaded guilty in the case. u.s. attorney general eric holder today defended president obama's moves to curb gun violence. the president signed 23 executive orders this week, calling for such things as more research into gun violence. today, in washington, holder told the u.s. conference of mayors that there's no question the orders are legal. >> now let me be very clear. let me be very clear. not one of these executive orders contrary to what a few have said impinges upon anyone's second amendment rights or are inconsistent with the historical use of executive power. >> sreenivasan: some republicans have charged the president's executive action improperly bypassed congress. an especially deadly week in syria's civil war neared an end today with reports of a new massacre. opposition activists accused a pro-government militia of killing more than 100 people on thursday in central syria. earlier in the week, nearly 90 people died in explosions at a university in aleppo. and today, a rocket struck another building in aleppo, reducing it to rubble, while suicide car bombers struck elsewhere. ports toldf numero casualties, but gave no numbers. indonesia's capital city, jakarta, struggled to recover today from heavy flooding. the downtown was swamped after a dike collapsed under the pressure of monsoon rains. thousands of people were forced to flee their homes as the water crept higher. and the death toll was 11, mostly from drowning or electrocution. the low-lying city has long been prone to flooding, but this year's is the worst since 2007. the flu is now widespread in nearly all of the u.s. the centers for disease control said today that all but two states, tennessee and hawai show widespread flu activity. the number of older people hospitalized with the illness rose sharply in the last week, and the number of children who've died increased again to 29. honda is recalling nearly 750,000 vehicles for a possible airbag problem. the auto maker said today the affected vehicles are pilot suvs and odyssey minivans spanning the model years 2009 to 2013. the driver's-side airbags may not have all the rivets they need, and that could stop them from deploying. no crashes or injuries have been reported. wall street rounded out the week on a mixed note. the dow jones industrial average gained 53 points to close at 13,649. the nasdaq fell one point to close at 3,134. for the week, the dow gained more than 1%; the nasdaq rose three-tenths of a percent. those are some of the day's major stories. now, back to ray. >> suarez: we return now to north africa, and what recent developments in mali and algeria tell us about the terrorist threat in that part of the world. for that, i'm joined by mary jane deeb, chief of the african and middle eastern division at the library of congress; and dirk vandewalle, an associate professor of government at dartmouth college. mary jane deeb, were you surprised that the alger yens moved as quickly toned the standoff at the gas plant as they did? >> not really. because i think they realized that if they didn't move quickly, the hostages could be taken to different parts, not only of algeria but outside algeria as well. they had to act quickly. they knew that they needed to have the hostages together ile they were in 1 place. it would have been much more difficult had they been spread out and taken by the terrorist. >> professor, is this now a regional crisis? >> well, in many ways, jeff, this has been a regional crisis, ever since the libyan reg seem-- regime, the qaddafi regime was replaced in libya, remember that after the civil war in libya we had kind of a power vacuum and following that power vacuum, the fact that a lot of the weapons that the good avi regime had bought had been spre throughout the country and smuggled into neighboring countries. so in that kind of vacuum that existed came in a number of groups including islamist groups that then took the opportunity to really stand up against, particularly as we now know in mali but also targeted some of the neighboring regime, some of the neighboring countries. and so in a sense it is not only a regional crisis, it's really a crisis that involves very closely goals outside the region as well meaning particularly the european union and e united states and to some extent the african union as well. >> suarez: why does this, mary jane deeb, immediately implicate eu? >> well, because once you attack the infrastructure which produces oil, gas and which link africa to europe, then you can create havoc in the institution of oil. and so it is important. i mean the french understood the importance of the movement in mali. they understood that as professor vandewalle was saying that once you have a movement, once you take over power w it's not simply, you know, e ploding a car here or there t is actually take over power in mali, then similar movements would be allowed to do the same in the region. >> suarez: so you buy it that the algerians under ktar are acting under sympathy with those in mali. >> absolutely. i have no doubt that the radical islamists in nrt africa and those who are in neighboring countries including in nigeria are in sympathy. so and this is what the french want to stop. and the algerian government as well. because algeria itself is not that stable and could be further destabilized by the actions. >> suarez: professor, are these forces some kind of network or do they just simply want many of the same things? >> well, in many ways, these are networks but the interesting phenomenon s and i want to add what mary jane just said, that some of these ris lambist movements but some of these are also movements that simply paste on their own label of being islamists. and some of these, are frankly just bandits. and so we see a number of movement both religious and nonrelige thaws have emerged that in many ways have opportuntickically taken advantage of the power vacuum that exists within the region. remember, this is not just in the-- mali, more tanya and niger, it also deals in large part with so insecurities that remain in north africa. and because of that power vacuum they've been able to achieve both i should say by what has happened during the arab spring in tunesia, but particularly in libya and have moved their goals forward, so to speak. >> but if there is a range of motivation f some have a political program, and some are as the professor suggests simply bandits, does the reaction of other powers in the world change? does the way the french react, dot way the algerian government reacts change depending on whether they are merely bandits or want to do something far more destabilizing? >>. >> i think what they are reacting to is the ones who have an objective to overthrow a regime to take over power. the bandits just joined the larger group. sohe bandits are there, they wl always be there, but the leaders have a clear goal to take over power, to create an islamist state in mali and then move further to niger, more tanya, senegal and the otherÑi countries. and certainly algeria is also on the map. >> professor what are the challenges involved. we're talking about a huge swathe of land, sparsely population-- sparsely populated. if you want to have a military response, if you want to respond to this kind of irregular action in the field, is this a daunting landscape on which to do it? >> it is a very daunting landscape, ray. and it will undoubtedly take many years before all of this is solved. the coordination between the different partners involved in this european union, the united states, the african union to some extent peripherally the arab league will be difficult. in addition to that, it also relies on the cooperation of the local states. now luckily libya in particular, the leadership in libya has moved forward and has been trying to coordinate already all kinds of security arrangements in north africa but then north africa needs to coordinate with the states, with the african union, with the united states, with the european union, and there are lots of sensitivities here, undoubtedly the united states will want to play a larger role, eventually. but that involves perhaps the africa command which is now located in student guard and out of-- stuudgard out of sensitive for the aftera afteran-- african concern and they have reason-- for example in algeria, because algeria has this long history of relation, somewhat antagonistic relation with the west but particularly with france, it will be very difficult to coordinate but already we're starting to see that some measures have been taken and undoubtedly that cooperation will really nearly have to be established if, indeed, that part of the world does not become highly destabilized and remain destabilized for a long period of time. >> mary jane deeb, thank you both. >> brown: online, you can view more of our reports on algeria and mali. those are on our "world" page. >> suarez: after months of planning for president obama's second inaugural, the moment has almost arrived. a holiday weekend of inaugural events in washington is about to begin. ♪ ♪ every four years since 1789, the military has massed its personnel to prepare for one of the grandest traditions in america, the presidential inauguration. ♪ ♪ the music rose before the sun during a rehearsal this past weekend and gave a hint of what to expect when the actual parade and ceremony happen monday. this celebration will be shorter and smaller than presint obama's first inaugural. but because it falls on the martin luther king holiday, organizers say attendance monday may be higher than for any other second inauguration. published estimates indicate the private fundraising goal for the festivities is about the same as 2009 when $53 million was raised. four years ago, individual donations were capped at $50,000 per person. this year, the presidential inaugural committee, or p.i.c., is accepting unlimited contributions om both individuals and corporations. p.i.c. c.e.o. and president stephen kerrigan told the newshour about the theme, "our people, our future," as the clock behind him ticked down to monday. >> the president started his campaign back in 2007, really, it started with a conversation with people all across the country about how we can collectively move this country forward. and he has kept that up through his administration and throughout the second campaign, because he really believes that our people are the future of the country and the strength of our country. you know, he's watched the grit and determination and hard work of average, everyday, ordinary americans help turn around this economy and get it growing again. you know, in first inaugurals, it's about a transition of power, peaceful transition of power. in this inaugural, it's really about the continuation of this president's legacy and his vision for the country. >> suarez: mr. obama will actually be sworn in sunday, in private, to meet the constitutional requirement for the oath on the 20th. then, he'll take the oath in public the next day. in a way, he will become the first president since franklin d. roosevelt to take the oath of office four times. in 2009, he took the oath twice because, in a do-over, performed the day after chief justice john roberts tripped on his lines during the first inauguration. >> within a few days, the president will be walking from that part of the capitol right here, and then down these airs. >> suarez: new york democratic senator chuck schumer is chairman of the joint congressional committee on inaugural ceremonies, which oversees all of the inaugural rituals related to the capitol. >> there's no tanks in the streets, there's no rioting or picketing or protesting. it's a beautiful thing about america that the inauguration reminds us of. with all the trouble we have, the inauguration symbolizes that the republic marches onward. >> suarez: the president's inauguration will begin, as it did four years ago, with a national day of service tomorrow where people wille encouraged to pledge a year's effort to community organizations. at the inauguration itself, there are a few firsts. >> 150 years after the emancipation proclamation was signed and 50 years after the march on washington, you're going to have the bible of the great emancipator placed on top of the bible of the leader of the civil rights movement in lincoln's and mlk's bibles. and then, the president of the united states is going to take his oath of office on that. >> suarez: there were ten official balls last time. this year? just two, the lowest number in the past 60 years, in order to save federal and local resources. one of the balls-- the commander-in-chief's ball-- is for members of the armed forces, as is a kid's concert intended for children of those serving in the military. along with celebrating the country's rich history, there'll be modern touches as well. all official groups involved, even the secret service, are using social media to get out updates on events, live-stream the inaugural, and deal with any issues quickly. washington, d.c., tourism groups have said they expect about 500,000 to 700,000 visitors this time. about 400,000 attended president george w. bush's second inaugural in 2005. to accommodate visitors and make money, official inaugural shops are selling all kinds of memorabilia, and luxury hotels such as the willard intercontinental have been advertising specialty packages, including "the oval suites" for $5,700 a night. the capitol has been readied over the last weeks and months. not much is left to chance. over 13,000 military have been game-planning the parade, traffic, crowd control since the summer. >> we have rehearsal of concept drills-- r.o.c. drills-- that we bring out a large map, and go through each individual stage and break it down in timeline with locations. and each section that has a responsibility goes through their portion and says exactly when they will be in specific situation
